Just installed 2.1 and one of my USB cables is hashed out. What does this mean. This cable controls my 4o3a antenna switch. I'm dead in the water right now.

Don't give up yet,  try a power down and remove the DC for a minute or so ..    Then power up and try again ..

I followed the installation instructions completely, shutdown radio, removed power and uninstalled previous version of SSDR. Installed new version (2.1). Restarted radio no antennas. Shutdown radio, unplugged power supply and waited two minutes. Turned everything back on and antennas are OK.
The USB cable status window still has hash marks thru antenna switch selection.

I was hoping the 4o3a antenna switch and rotator genius software would have been intergrated with this version. Maybe down the road.

Bob, the hash means that the radio thinks the USB cable is unplugged.  Have you tried unplugging and then plugging in the USB cable again?
